A loan of $600 helped to buy supplies and pay for labor for his coffee crops.

Andres's story

Andres, 29, is married and lives with his wife and child, who are his main priority. With his loan, he plans to purchase fertilizers and fungicides and pay for workers to help him with his coffee crops. In addition, he will buy some seedlings to put in when the rains start. His goal is to increase the density of his plants per area, also taking advantage of the good fertility of the soil and climate and other conditions that are favorable to the cultivation of coffee. With these improvements, he hopes to obtain a bit more income and in this way improve his family's living conditions. Also, he will invest a bit more in his land and also accomplish some other goals. This is the first loan that he has received from FUDECOSUR. He has not taken loans from the state banks before, but FUDECOSUR has provided him with a loan with better terms and a much lower interest rate.
